Although this looks like a typical tourist restaurant (laminated pictures of the food) in fact it was the only place we ate twice at during our stay in Menton. Nothing fancy, but the pasta was freshly cooked and delicious, if somewhat over-generous portions! The service was chirpy and welcoming, but I guess with any restaurant like this it just depends who serves you. It's right in the centre of the buzzy pedestrian area, so worth a try.

We stopped here for Apero and the wine selection was great. My husband being from france appreciated the local wine varieties and their knowledge. They also brought a lovely free tray with chips, olives, bread, cheeses and salami. We enjoyed our drinks and lovely tray. You could also order more . She just opened this place in June. All the bad reviews you see are from the old owner!!!!!

This is an Italian-based restaurant, staff had good humour and were very friendly. Good food, especially recommend the swordfish spaghetti!

This place is horrible. We stopped there knowing there wasn't the best place to get delicious food so we chose simple meals: pizza and pasta. And we couldn't be more disappointed. Bolognesa sauce was too salty and its meat had no flavour at all. Pizza wasn't too bad, but not the tastiest pizza ever. Plus, the waiter was absolutely disgusting. Avoid this restaurant by all means!

Also we should have known better, but it was time to have lunch, with the kids. And it was terrible. The food was not good, the 2 pizza's for the kids ( 7,50 euro's each) where charged as menu d'enfant for 8.50 each? the 20,00 euro salad never came, but was charged ?! It was a disgrace
for hospitality. But , we should have known better.....
